Happy 2023!
Dear SFUSD Families:

Dear SFUSD Families,


Happy new year! It’s been a wet start to 2023. We are continuing to monitor weather conditions in close coordination with the City and County of San Francisco. SFUSD staff have been working around the clock to manage the impacts of the recent weather events on schools, and it’s because of their hard work that schools are able to safely operate during inclement weather. Please know that we take the safety of our students very seriously, and we will continue to monitor the impact of inclement weather on our school facilities and operations. As a reminder, visit sf72.org for storm recovery and safety tips from the City and County of San Francisco. 


I want to extend my deepest gratitude for all that families and staff are doing to support students amid this unusually wet weather. Please take good care.


In community, 

Superintendent Wayne
